Leo Messi did not have his night against Atlético de Madrid and lived one of his worst games of the season. The '10' did not stop losing balls against the rojiblancos and ended with a total of 23 losses
Leo Messi completed in Wanda Metropolitan one of his worst parties of what goes of season. The Argentinian did not have his night and managed without penalty neither glory by Madrid in a duel in which all the FC Barcelona disappointed. The problem is that it does no so much, the '10' was the light that lighted up the way of his team in the darkest days. Now, the '10' is not more than a player more in the bad days of the Barça.
It is difficult to speak badly of a player that has given so many joys to the Barcelona group, of somebody that has made history and that has turned into the best player of the history of the club. But after performances like which did this Saturday in front of the Athletic, there is not more remedy that do it. The rosarino was horrible in all the senses and finish with neither more neither less than 23 losses in total.
Leo was imprecise with the balloon so much in the pass as in the dribbling, something in what up to now it was the teacher of teachers. In fact, so alone gave 36 good passes, a figure that taking into account the balloons that lost result to be insufficient. The defence rojiblanca won him the game at all times and snatched him the spherical almost whenever the forward approached to positions of danger.
One of the few times that did not lose it was in the clearest occasion of the Barcelona in the crash. A spectacular his centre with the right leg was to stop in command of Clément Lenglet, that forgave the tie when had everything in favour. That went surely the only contribution of the attacker to his team, since in the clearest occasion that had finished throwing with power, but without precision, to the hands of Jan Oblak.
The football and the attitude of Messi, to debate
But the but of this Messi is not that it fail or that lose balls that before did not lose, is his attitude to the hour to do it. The blaugrana fell in Wanda and gave the impression that to his captain did not hurt him less than puncturing in Mendizorroza or Getafe. Leo has accustomed to lose and to not surrendering to the height of the shield that saw, something tremendously worrisome of face to the future of the club and of the player in the entity.
In occasions, gives the impression that the '10' has made a fresh start and that already is thinking in the campaign that comes. It does not be necessary to forget that it finishes agreement in 2021 and that in January could negotiate with any team to go free in summer. Only he knows what happens him and what wants to do with his future, but the reality to day of today is that his attitude and his football are leaving a lot that wish. The Barça needs his best version urgently and depends on he show it or follow being shipwrecked in the field.
